Ok- we have come to some type of sleeping arrangement!
My husband comes home about 2-3pm. My mom said that she doesnt mind letting him sleep for 2 hours, before she goes home.
I get home at about 6:30pm. I will sleep from 7pm-11pm, while hubby watches them. Then I wake up from 11pm-3am while he sleeps. He then awakes at 3am, and lets me sleep until 5am right before he leaves for work. That way, we each have about 6 hours of sleep a night- although it isnt in a row. Who cares, at least we can finally function! We tried this out last night and it was fine!
I think we will be able to somewhat manage this way.
I love being back at work. I love getting dressed and interacting with people. It does hurt me to leave them for almost 12 hours a day, but what can I do?
Everyone has asked me if I was able to take off more time from work. I cant really. My maternity leave ended in January, and my boss was kind enough to let me have another 4 weeks. I cant push my luck. I love this company, and I need to show that this job is important to me.
So all in all, I am glad that we have some sort of sanity.
Can I tell you something truly amazing?
January of last year, redbook had a series on infertility diarys. At the time, I too was struggling with if, and when I read the articles, I would cry. I decided to write a letter to them to thank them for putting those stories out. Well, they published my letter in the next issue. This past sunday while I was at my hairdresser, guess which magazine issue was out? Yup..
I opened it up, read my letter and started to cry. I have come a long way and I thank GD for my daughters every day.
BTW- No one ever told me your feet change during pregnancy. I was a 7 1/2 shoe size, now I am about an 8 or 8 1/2. Almost all of my shoes do not fit!
Oh, and another thing… did you hear jennifer lopez is pregnant with twins? It’s so funny how her dad confirmed it, and said “well, twins run in my family”… umm, anyone who has twins knows that it has nothing to do with a woman’s paternal side (wether she has fraternal twins or not). I mean, why cant they just admit that they had ivf? Why is it so taboo?
